Chicago Pedway Tour

Reviewed 6 December 2014 via mobile

I took the Pedway Tour in December 2014. Margaret is one of the funniest and friendliest tour guides ever.
The Chicago pedway tour is perfect for a winter time activity. You are not outside at all, and you get to see the city from a different perspective.
The highlight of the tour is the trip into the Chicago Cultural Center. The Tiffany dome is amazing. Margaret was also very knowledgeable about all the stops we made and told engaging stories about each.
If you are looking for a fun and slightly off the beaten path tour, I recommend this one.

A fun, interesting tour during winter months. It included lots of interesting facts. Margaret was very animated and made the tour fly.

Margaret was our fun guide. She was extremely informative and certainly knew her stuff and who knew there is such a thing as the pedway system! We even told fellow people of the city and they had not even heard of the pedway system and Margaret was correct many people do not even know about it! Its an underground walking system, with its own unique symbol . Due to the very extreme weather conditions which chicago imposes this underground system makes it popular with people who need it to take some sort of shade from the adverse weather. Interesting, yet warm and underground. You see many beautiful parts of the city while underground too, Tiffany stained glass, the ceiling in Macy's, warm shopping malls, food courts, state buildings, tube stations and of course Margaret also gives you a lot of the citys history too, which is great , if you want to find out about the city in a nutshell. Margaret has created this tour, by use of the pedway, a simple but very effective approach to Chicago's underground. Factual, interesting and funny. Reasonably priced too, with about 90 minutes of a tour. Good value in my opinion.

Whether you are visiting Chicago or have lived here all of your lives, there's always something new to learn about this great city. Today we learned about the Pedway, which provides a [mostly] underground walk of Chicago. Who knew? It was a great deal of fun to walk along underground for a while and pop up in a building blocks away. This 90 minute tour was just the right time and distance to learn how many of these great Chicago buildings are connected. And Margaret the tour guide added a humorous touch to the proceedings. This was made even more fun because Margaret so obviously loves this city and what she does. In that respect, her passion is infectious. We brought our three grandchildren (ages 16, 14 and 9) along on this tour during their spring break, perhaps giving their parents a break as well! They enjoyed the tour as much as we did. I would highly recommend this tour, again,map whether you have lived here all your lives or are just visiting. And because it takes place underground, the weather is never a factor!

Our granddaughters and us got a wonderful tour of the Chicago underground Pedway system this weekend. Margaret is very knowledgeable about both the Pedway system and Chicago history. She's a great tour guide, taking time to answer everyone's questions while keeping the tour moving. This was the winter of Chicago's polar vortex, so we loved moving through the heated underground walkways (air conditioned in the summer!), and surfacing to view a few of downtown Chicago's rich architectural landmarks. The tour was a great Chicago cultural experience!
